Mr. Kathwari concluded, "We plan to continue with our marketing and operational initiatives including introduction of a major product program reaching a larger consumer base and a strong adverting program getting across our total value proposition of style, quality, value, and personal service. While the economic environment remains challenging, we remain cautiously optimistic primarily due to the implementation of our various initiatives. However, we are also preparing for contingencies if the overall economic conditions were to deteriorate."
